Rose gold is coloured by the copper that is mixed in its alloy. With beautiful pink hues, rose gold jewellery captures the essence of feminine charm, offering summertime appeal.
This blush-coloured metal has certainly been in vogue in recent years, yet its existence is nothing new. Dating back to the mid to late 19th century, this copper-infused metal was first championed in Russia when the renowned jeweller Carl Fabergé began incorporating it in his designs.
The more copper that is mixed with the alloy, the more pronounced the rose colour becomes. The intensity of colour depends on the quality and quantity of the copper used.
